An Unfortunate Circumstance

My heart is being held prisoner In her dungeon of coquettishness She hasn’t fully rejected me But my advances she coyly deflects I haven’t given up all hope She still smiles at my innuendos But when I approach for a carnal dance She just steps all over my toes My heart is being held prisoner In the shadows of doubt’s darkness As if she is waiting for someone better Before donning her wedding dress I wish that I could just escape To pursue another’s full acceptance But it seems my heart is forever staked To this unfortunate circumstance
